This is one of those places that you worry about praising as perfect in case it's fully booked next time you want to stay! Just LOVED everything about it. The building, the bedroom, the bathroom with my favourite goodies, the views to die for, the absolutely fantastic faultless food, the log fire, but perhaps most of all the delightful helpful...

A welcome return to the Manor House hotel and as always it was perfect. Room wonderful with sea views and lovely lounge area with roaring fire. Had to leave early the next day and was served a very good breakfast early. A real place to relax and unwind in excellent surroundings. Will be back!

My wife and I have stayed at Manor House five or six times in recent years. We always try to get a room on the back as there is such a fantastic view of Oban Harbour, with the town across the harbour and to the right, and to the left the Isle of Mull in the distance, with Kerera much...

The Manor house is a beautiful older building with wonderful views over Oban Bay. The food is of "fine dining " standard, served by attentive staff who take time to ensure things are as close to perfect as possible. The menu is extensive . The accommodation is superb, the dooms comfortable and warm and Residents are only a few minutes...

My wife and I and a colleague and her husband stayed at the Manor House almost a year ago. (Yes, this review is painfully late, but life sometimes intervenes.) I researched places to stay in Oban carefully, and this was the cream of the crop. It did not disappoint, and those who have seen my reviews know I have only...

This is a really nice hotel in an excellent location for the ferry. We had a large, well equipped and comfortable room. The meal was excellent. We were sorry we were only able to do one night and would happily return.

Stayed unfortunately for only one night. This hotel is right on the water in Oban and is just a perfect setting and a short walk to the town center. Wish we could have stayed longer in Oban as it is a great little town. We did take the tour and tasting at the Oban Distillery, which is well worth it...

This is a very pretty hotel. It's in a commanding position looking over Oban Harbour to it's gorgeous shoreline. The building is reasonably well maintained with lovely public rooms: the lounge, bar, dining room and library. However the bedrooms are a little small and tired for the expectations of today's guests. So staffing and charm must outweigh the physical limitations...

Spent a night here on the recommendation of my partner who had stayed there before. The room was small but beautifully decorated and very clean. The view from the room was lovely and the breakfast was superb. The staff are warm and welcoming. The photograph is the view from our room.
